Ray Carrillo vowed to restore respect and harmony when he was elected two years ago to head what was widely considered a badly managed coroner's office. But midway through his four-year term, the Riverside County coroner presides over an office that some say suffers from mismanagement, poor working conditions, and badly trained investigators. There have been sensational cases and blunders, including the handling of Liberace's death and the mistaken cremation of a possible homicide victim.

A man who was thrown out of a Fresno nightclub and his companion are no longer suspects in the murders of seven people, police said Monday. Detectives eliminated the pair as suspects after interrogating them, Sgt. Daryl Green said. A security guard who escaped Sunday's early morning carnage at Carrillo's Club had told police that one man had been thrown out Friday, then was refused entrance when he returned with a friend on Saturday.

Mark and Gail McClure had just finished moving into their new home here at 3 a.m. Sunday when their cat, Puffy, began howling in the back yard. McClure, 24, went outside to investigate and found the cat standing on a picnic table surrounded by 20 cardboard boxes, apparently left by the previous owners. Inside the boxes, one of which was leaking, were bulging plastic bags that reeked of a chemical smell. "I picked up a bag and it had a squishy feeling," said McClure, an auto technician.

Coroner's investigators probing the death of an 83-year-old woman whose head was frozen by a cryonics laboratory here are waging a "vicious smear campaign" against the lab, a spokesman for the organization and the woman's son charged Monday. Michael Darwin, president of Alcor Life Extension Foundation, asserted at a press conference here that the investigation is a "witch hunt" carried out by "people who have been given guns and badges, but little training and less supervision."

Two men toting semiautomatic weapons walked into a nightclub and restaurant on the outskirts of this city early Sunday morning and opened fire, killing seven people and wounding two more. It was the bloodiest crime in Fresno history. Police said the two gunmen, who were still at large, had been denied entrance Friday and Saturday night and returned a few minutes after the 2 a.m. closing. "We think it's retaliation for being denied entrance to the bar," said Fresno Police Officer Rick Ventura.
